Dodi Fayed's Dad

Sues Paul Anka

'My Way' Is B.S.

6/3/2013 5:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The billionaire father of Dodi Fayed is suing music legend Paul Anka, claiming the singer defamed him in his autobiography by trashing Dodi and claiming daddy Mohamed Al-Fayed was always there to clean up his messes. 

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Anka's stories in his book, "My Way," falsely portray Dodi as "a womanizing, drug-using deadbeat and criminal."   According to the suit, Anka falsely claims Mohamed regularly stepped in to protect his son ... in one case agreeing to pay "hush money" to Anka over a loan he made to Dodi. 

According to Anka, Dodi had $150k seized at U.S. Customs and was scared his dad would find out, so he convinced Anka to front him a loan for the cash.  Anka claims Dodi paid it back with a rubber check, and Mohamed ended up agreeing to pay the loot out of fear Anka would blow the lid on Dodi's Customs problems.

According to the suit, Anka went on to talk about what a screwup Dodi was ... claiming Mohamed ended up having his son banished from L.A. because Dodi was so out of control.

Anka's not scared, telling TMZ  "We have the evidence.  We're very confident in this.  Everything is true."

Nothing wrong with a man trying protect his son. Paul Anka is an a$$hole for gossiping to the world about someone else's business. He needs to clean out his own closet.

Oh wasn't that loser Doodi one of those....middle eastern types? Ick. No one misses him, that's for sure. And Daddy here is clearly a moron who can't handle reality, and who seems to be ready to wage jihad against Anka for telling the truth. Those people love to wage jihad for any reason they can make up in their twisted, dull minds. Why do all the moslems hate America? Is it our freedom?

I don't understand why these people like to trash the dead!! It's been such a long time since they died, I don't know why he would bring this up now... unless he's in desperate need of money and needs a juicy story to sell a book!! SMH

Anka has always been an A list songwriter but a B list performer. He wrote a few of Sinatra's most iconic tunes but there is little in the book about the art of songwriting. Most of it is tabloid name dropping and he never mentions how as a writer of love songs he wound up with a gold digger just like Frank.

Hey, this book is sounding more interesting all the time! Thanks for the advertising, Fayed.

Saw him recently in concert and he was very entertaining, but he was also signing and selling his book in the lobby, and was not very nice at all.
I think he has a Napoleon complex.
He also seems to have something negative to say about everyone in the book but Annette Funicello..
Meanwhile he comes off like a boyscout , while he is hanging with Frank Sinatra
